Schon zerfließt das ferne Gebirg mit...

Language: German (Deutsch)

Schon zerfließt das ferne Gebirg mit Wolken
In ein Meer; den Wogen entsteigt der Mond, er
Grüßt die Flur, entgegen ihm grüßt das schönste
Lied Philomelens.

Aus dem Blütenstrauche, der um das Plätzchen
Zarter Liebe heimlichend sich verschlinget:
Mirzi horcht am Busen des Jünglings ihrem 

Dort am Hügel weiden die Schafe beider 
Traulichen Gemenges in einer Herde,
Ihre Glöcklein stimmen so lieblich ein zu 
Frohen Akkorden.

Già con le nubi i lontani monti sembrano...

Language: Italian (Italiano) after the German (Deutsch)

Già con le nubi i lontani monti sembrano fondersi
in un mare; dalle cui onde sorge la luna,
salutando i campi, mentre in risposta saluta
il più bel canto di Filomela.1
Dal cespuglio fiorito che, attorno a un angolino
di tenero amore segreto, tutto si intreccia,
Mirzi ascolta, sul petto del giovane,
il suo flautare magico.
Là sulla collina pascolano le loro pecore,
intimamente mescolate in un solo gregge,
e i loro campanacci intonano delicati,
sereni accordi.
